The Central Blood Bank announced that the February 19, 2014, blood drive sponsored by three IUP organizations—American Medical Student Association, Pride Alliance, and Tri-Beta National Biological Honor Society—has been selected as the Blood Drive of the Week.
The letter announcing the award came from Jim Fitzgerald, Central Blood Bank chief operating officer, who indicated that the organizations “are a special group, to us and the local patients you support through your selfless generosity.”
The drive successfully collected 61 units of blood.
Blood drives are coordinated through the Office of Service Learning. For information, please contact Diane Stipcak at 724-357-2235.
